Favorite Go-to Distressor Settings for Vocals?

Interested in what others are doing,

tried Opto mode as another engineer at the studio I work at swears by it, but definitely not for me. I usually go pretty fast attack (2 1/2) an release (3 1/2-4) with usually the second harmonic button engaged and 3:1 ratio. Usually aiming for 0-3 db GR. If its a singer I like pulling the attack an release back to more moderate settings with the same 0-3db GR.

0-3 db of reduction on a distressor?
Nah. Different strokes for different folks.
I like 2:1, slowish attack, fastish release, 5-12 db of gr. Depends if it's the only compressor being used.
